The Wilshire Precision Products story.

Wilshire Precision traces its roots to 1951, when Harold Lewis started a small machine shop on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles. Like most Southern California precision machine shops in the 1950’s, Wilshire offered its services to the burgeoning local aerospace industry. It was during these early years that Wilshire Precision established a reputation for uncompromising quality and outstanding customer service that is at the foundation of our success today.
